alone, or a few other individuals wvith him
were concerned in this mtatter. we should leave
them to, take care of themselves. but we regard
the prosperity and especially the tranquility of
the.State as involved, and we mttst say a few
words of explaniation and ca.,tion. Who shall
be our next Governor, is a question of subor
binate concern, which should not affect our
District elections, and wvhich has been already
sufficiently discussed in our columns. bnt it is
a much graver question whether the angry feel
ings exhibited in the Nullification controversy
shall be wantonly renewed when the merits of
the contest htave long been adjuted. We can
not expect that our Union friends will tamely
submit to be continually rated for their past
errors, without making some efforts for their
own vindication and some assaults upoa their an
cient a'dversaries. We are as tirmly convinced
now its we ever we. e of the trutth and value of thae
doctrine of Nullification. but we are content that
it should be held in reserve until an occasion
for its application be presented, anid that the
adoption of this creed shall not be the exclusive
test of political merit ini all contingencies. A
good knight does not always sleep in his armour,
and a true patriot will not stigmatize his allies,
and reinounce their aid, because they may have
once wvarred against him.
In a controversy so king and bitter as that
which prevailed in this State concernitig the
proper remedy for the oppressions of the Pro-]
tectory System, it is natural to suppose that
passion sometimes usurped the place of reason,
and thaterrors on both sides Pmay have been corn.
mitted. In the letter of Cul. Richardson's pub
lished in out last number, he distinctly announ
ees that if the Tariff controversy should recur,
he would support the State wvith all his energy,
without stickling about the particular mnode of
action, and after such a declaration, must lie beI
forever proscribed on account of his first disa
greemnent with the majority of ouar citizens?
The Clarendon Resolutions were Founded
upon tate misapprehension by the Union party
of the views and objects of their opponlents i n<
advocating the Oath of Allegiance. The Utnion
party supposed that the N~ullifiers in supporting
this measure, intended to renoutnce all obedi a

Treaties, and Constitiutioin, baut when th is wvas

the short comment of the lutelligencer upon
the Vermont elections.
"VERMON.-The mmtaority of Horace Everett
for Coigress, at the late electioin, over his cip
lponent, is 2,222 votes! In this district hereto
fore, there have been sometimics two or three
trials before an electioncould be made, so close
has been the division of partierin it.
"Mr. Slade's manjority in his District is he

Hull's in his district is over two thousanid votes!
What a glorious State is Vermont!"
Whig writers constantly attrilmte the peci
niary distress of the country, to the past and
present Administrations. Johin Tyler Ieir can
didate for the Vice-Presidency, is doulitless,

From the subjoined extract, it appears that
Mr. Tyler ascribed the great commercial emi.
barassment which prevailed in the country
upwards of twenty years ago, to the Banking
system. We know not, what may be the ii.
pinion of A r. Tyler now; mnor is it a matter or
amly consequence. When lie miade the follow
ing remarks, hie! was a tmetiber of the Uniited
States Senate, and-doubtless, spoke the hottest
sentiments of his heart. Ile says in a speech
delivered by him in the Seiate. April 5, 1819 :

Tie Hooe Case.-A great deal has been said
in Whig newspapers all over the country, in
ibuse of the course of Mr. Vane Buren, in the
